I've got the Monday morning, I don't want to go back to work today, because I have had too many days off in a row, blues. Bleh.
My weekend was completely wonderful. My sis's and I had the best time, we didn't do much, just hung out for the most part. We did go visit our step dad down in Centerville, and that was extremely hard for me, but I survived. I hadn't been back to our Moms house since she died, and I really didn't want to go this time...but I managed. He cooked a wonderful lunch for us, I got to see her sweet dogs again, the only thing missing was her. I cried most of the drive home but was okay after that. The rest of the weekend was spent laughing. We laughed so hard that my body hurts this morning...good heavens. They left yesterday morning and I spent the rest of the day cleaning up, then laying on my butt in front of the tube. I did get out and take a short walk, the weather was halfway decent. Having both of my sis's here meant more to me than anyone, including them, will probably ever know. Sometimes you just need that family connection, knowing that no matter how effed up life can get, that they love you just because. That sister connection is the closest thing to the mother/child connection there is. I hope that someday, if they haven't already, my kids will learn that. I felt very strongly that mom approved of this weekend. I cannot believe that she has been gone a year tomorrow...and yet sometimes it feels like a lifetime ago that I got to talk to her.
And I'm out of here. Have a happy Monday. Bleh.
